It is general knowledge that prepayment could be shown in manuscript before 1853, but only by stamps (or postal stationery equivalent) after 1853. Can anyone give me a reference to how this information was communicated/ enforced, or to the actual date?
Thanks
Peter Chadwick

This topic came up on Stampboards a few years back -- to my surprise it turned out to be a more complicated situation than I'd realised:
